Spring is finally arriving!

Last July we were hit with a really bad hailstorm that wiped out our fruit trees and plants. Winter was quite dry and then in May we got nailed with lots of rain (good!) and snow (annoying!).

One surprise in my yard this year is a small bed of iris that has never bloomed in the four years we’ve lived here (I think it’s four, I’ve lost track!). So, here is one of the beauties.

I also have a small bed of poppies and they are starting to bloom.

Finally, my gigantic lilac bush in the corner of my house gets beat up every year. I thought for sure that last foot of snow we got a couple weeks ago would do her in…but no, she is holding strong and was full of bees and butterflies!

Yesterday and overnight we got some really nasty thunderstorms including hail, everything looks to have survived. Now it’s time to watch and see what else blossoms!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! I am a mixed bag all jumbled up with glitter writing a book, playing on ham radio (I'm WY7YL), being a Parrothead, making jewelry, running, reading, or running around with my camera taking pics of nature and my cats. This blog is a smattering of all of it!
